I turn 16 in November this year. My budget is 2,500 and I'm not sure what to do. I need ideas.

You can do the basic sweet 16. Rent out a venue or country club and get a theme. Once you have a theme you get a DJ, Photo booth, decorations,etc... The venue caters the food unless you want someone else to. You need a guest list obviously, you need to have invitations made. Get a cake made. Get a dress and go somewhere to have your hair and makeup done.

If you don't want a big party in a venue you can have a spa day or go to a concert with your friends.

My 16th birthday is coming up next year on the 14th of February and I'm stuck on what to do! I can't have a party at home because I live in a small flat and I can't have a party outside as I only have a little garden. I live in Newcastle and there's not a lot to do in the winter. I would roughly like to invite 12 friends. Any ideas guys?

I'm having a 16th birthday party, and I have about 35-40 people I want to invite. It can't be too expensive, less that $500/$400, but I want it to be really fun while classy at the same time, you know? I know a lot of people have themes, but I'm not really too into that. I was thinking of maybe renting out a banquet hall and to just have food and dancing, but that might be too much and I can't seem to think of anything else. Any ideas? Please help! :)

Also - here's something that's really cool: If you really don't need presents, ask your friends to bring donations for your local animal shelter instead of gifts. ;)

Well if you don't want it indoors or outdoors would you want to have a sleepover party but like maybe go out to the movies or a waterslide place and chill there until night and then you have a sleepover at your house .

I'm turning 16 in March and have no idea what to do. I have considered a bon fire or maybe going to a indoor pool, but I'm so lost. I will have about 10 other friends there at the most. I would like it to be somewhat cheap for my parent's budget.

I want it to be super fun and something I will never forget. Any ideas or suggestions? I would like to do something outside, but with the weather, I'm not sure.

I personally think that it is the friends you spend the event with rather than the "stuff" you do that makes the time special. The simplest things can be the best fun. Both of your ideas sound like fun. Perhaps you could do both. I always think that spending time around a campfire, talking, roasting hotdogs, making s'mores, etc. is a wonderful time. Perhaps one of your friends knows how to play a guitar and you can have a sing-a-long. That is always fun.

My 16th is in October and I'm really confused on what to do, I've considered a bonfire, but I don't want all my friends to get really bored and our garden isn't that big either. I'm thinking of inviting around 25 girls and guys and I don't want to spend a lot of money.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know :)

hi, my birthday is in October aswell and I was just coming to get ideas off here but last year I had the same amount and we went shopping out of town and then we caught the bus home and when we got home got dressed up in heels and dresses and went out for dinner then we watched movies until we fell asleep. The day after that we went to a local show and the weekend was a blast!

Thanks for reading this! I appreciate any advice you can offer. I am not girly and not outgoing (so there won't be very many people at my party (10 at the most) and they will be all girls).

I am looking for any party ideas that are free or really cheap :) I'm not paying for it, but my parents don't have much money and so I don't want them to have to spend lots of money on a birthday party.

I don't want to have a slumber party, and I can't do anything on the weekends because of work. I know that it is really easy for people to get bored at parties if there isn't something going on at all times, and I'd hate for that to be my party.

Does anyone have any ideas? Basically: cheap, fun, and simple? Thanks!

You could always get some balloons (either fill with helium or just use air) but before you blow them up, roll up a truth or dare card in it. It's really fun and people have to pop the balloon to get to the card.

I am having a sort of dance party at my house and there will probably be about 100 people there, guys and girls mixed. I have a DJ planned for the dancing, and all my food is planned as well, but I can't think of any other activities as dancing for hours upon hours can be boring. Please help?

I agree with redhatterb-a large number of attendees for most homes! A DJ is a good idea but, of course, people will dance only for so long.

Your main problem is that you have so many people in one place that trying some other form of entertainment is rather difficult. You can consider a scavenger hunt but need several people to handle the arrangements, hunt items, places, etc. Other possibilities are hiring entertainers such as comedians, actors, etc., for performances.

I'm turning 16 on April 22. I'm having a party with boys and girls, and it's very low budget. I want to do something at a park. I don't want it to be a scavenger hunt, as some of my friends have scoliosis (curved spine, very painful), and they can't move around for an extended period of time. I'm not very girly either. My parents don't want a bunch of people over. It doesn't have to be at a park. Any ideas? Please, nothing expensive. Thank you!

What about some sort of board game contest, or card games? Are your friends into that sort of thing? You might set up a tournament or similar with games like Trivial Pursuit or card games like Hearts. Does anyone in your group play guitar? Music for a singalong always goes over well, I think. Could you do charades? I hope these suggestions give you some ideas.

I am turning 16 in less than 2 months, and I have no idea on what to do. I would really like to do something unique, but my birthday is in December. I really don't like most winter themed parties, and I am fairly athletic. Not many of my friends are as well, but I would to do something active. None of us are really girly. And I am planning on maybe 5 or 6 people at the most.

Will you have snow? If so, how about tobogganing? Skating and skiing require skill to really be fun, and can be expensive if you need a ski lesson (and then it will be fun.) What about laser tag? That might be totally different and is active without being too difficult.

My 16th birthday is coming up. My party has to be cheap and at my house in winter. I don't know what I should do for my party. I don't even know how many people I am inviting. I'm a tomgirl so it can't be very girly. Please help me with some ideas.

You could do a bonfire in your backyard! For my sweet sixteen my parents rented out 3 fire pits (which are inexpensive) and my guests could be either in my basement or outside in the winter without getting cold. Everyone loved it! There was no theme we all just hung out and had fun! A plus we got to wear whatever so that made it easy for everyone (and made the guys especially happy that they didn't have to dress up). And since I was on a budget we ordered pizza and got a variety of deserts and chips from Walmart.

As for a cake we made it ourself because it's more fun and really inexpensive! We put on the radio for music and the most expensive thing we got was a photobooth which was around $150 but definitely worth it! Not that many people have a party like this, they're usually upscale so a lot of people enjoyed it and thought it was "very unique".
